Bidding over Athletic Bowl’s rehab a failure

Bidding for the rehabilitation of the bleachers at the Baguio Athletic Bowl, which was participated in by two construction firms, has failed.

MAN VS NATURE  -- The Buyog Watershed, one of the critical sources of clean water of the Baguio Water District, remains undisturbed by destructive human activities despite the growing number of houses outside its boundary. While there are no reports of squatting within the reservation, efforts to protect and preserve this remaining green patch could be more effective if the government construct a concrete fence to secure it, avoiding possible encroachment in the future.

DOJ to resolve cases drawn up vs Aliping
LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Police service with a woman’s touch is proven effective.

The office of Justice Sec. Leila M. De Lima will have to resolve whether or not there is ground to prosecute Baguio City Rep. Nicasio Aliping, Jr. and three construction companies for violations of the Revised Forestry Code in Mt. Sto. Tomas.


The provincial director of the Benguet police office last week warned aggrieved parties against taking the law into their hands in wake of the killing of two La Trinidad residents and the wounding of another by an off-duty policeman on Aug. 7 in front of a bar in Barangay Poblacion.

A case of murder was filed against a 23-year-old Criminology graduate who surrendered and admitted to have killed a 15-year-old Grade 8 student in Baguio.
BEAUTY AND BRAINS -- Mayor Mauricio Domogan is flanked by some Miss Baguio 2014 candidates, who earlier shared their views on how to make the city a better to place to live and do business in, during a press conference where various programs and activities in line with the 105th charter day celebrations were announced.

GEO-HAZARD -- Benguet Gov. Nestor Fongwan and Tuba Councilor Tita Bugtong inspect the sinking area at Kiangan Village along  Camp 3, Kennon Road, Tuba.

Ronald Cosalan, Tublay Vice Mayor Armando Lauro, and officials of the Department of Agrarian Reform turn over a water facility at Tublay Central School on Aug. 14. The project aims to protect children from waterborne illnesses. -- Amor Moresto

Major civil works that will include the improvement of the oval track will commence as soon as the supplemental budget is approved.
